A novel anaerobic pectinolytic bacterium (strain 14T) was isolated from human faeces. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain 14T belonged to the family Ruminococcaceae, but was located separately from known clostridial clusters within the taxon. The closest cultured relative of strain 14T was Acetivibrio cellulolyticus (89.7 % sequence similarity). Strain 14T shared ~99 % sequence similarity with cloned 16S rRNA gene sequences from uncultured bacteria… Expand
Genomic insights from Monoglobus pectinilyticus: a pectin-degrading specialist bacterium in the human colon
This strain occupies a new ecological niche for a primary degrader specialized in foraging a habitually consumed plant glycan, thereby enriching the understanding of the diverse community profile of the HGM. Expand
Flavonoid-Modifying Capabilities of the Human Gut Microbiome—An In Silico Study
Flavonoids are a major group of dietary plant polyphenols and have a positive health impact, but their modification and degradation in the human gut is still widely unknown. Due to the rise ofExpand
An Update on the Novel Genera and Species and Revised Taxonomic Status of Bacterial Organisms Described in 2016 and 2017
Noteworthy discussion centers around descriptions of novel Corynebacteriaceae and an anaerobic mycolic acid-producing bacterium in the suborder CoryneBacterineae; revisions within the Propionibacterium, Clostridium, Borrelia, and Enterobacter genera; and a major reorganization of the family Enterobacteriaiaceae.

Communal Living: Glycan Utilization by the Human Gut Microbiota.
This review presents an overview of the current understanding of glycan utilization by the Human Gut Microbiota on three levels: molecular mechanisms of individual glycan deconstruction and uptake by key bacteria, glycan-mediated microbial interactions, and community-scale effects of dietary changes. Expand
Pectin in diet: Interactions with the human microbiome, role in gut homeostasis, and nutrient-drug interactions.
Understanding the interplay between functional and immunological responses inside animal or human gut as influenced by pectin in diets is provided, and this knowledge can be used to define preferred dietary pectins, targeting beneficial bacteria, and favoring balanced microbiota communities in the gut to maximize pECTins' health benefits.

Deciphering diet-gut microbiota-host interplay: Investigations of pectin
The structure properties of pectin including degree of esterification and branched chains played critical roles in their physiological functions of metabolism regulation, inflammation modulation, and carcinogen prevention. Expand
Guided dietary fibre intake as a means of directing short-chain fatty acid production by the gut microbiota
ABSTRACT The human colon contains a complex microbial community (the microbiota), composed mostly of bacteria, that degrades and ferments indigestible polysaccharides known collectively as dietaryExpand
The effects of carbohydrate structure on the composition and functionality of the human gut microbiota
The provision of insoluble carbohydrates to the colon appears important for the sustenance of ‘keystone’ species that play a crucial role in stabilising the gut community. Expand

Ruminococcus champanellensis sp. nov., a cellulose-degrading bacterium from human gut microbiota.
On the basis of phylogenetic analysis, and morphological and physiological data, strain 18P13(T) can be differentiated from other members of the genus Ruminococcus with validly published names. Expand
Cultured Representatives of Two Major Phylogroups of Human Colonic Faecalibacterium prausnitzii Can Utilize Pectin, Uronic Acids, and Host-Derived Substrates for Growth
Many F. prausnitzii isolates were able to utilize uronic acids for growth, an ability previously thought to be confined to Bacteroides spp. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of an Anaerobic, Cellulolytic Microorganism, Acetivibrio cellulolyticus gen. nov., sp. nov.†
The colonies produced by these bacteria on cellulose agar were round, clear, translucent, and cream-colored and had an undulate margin and the major fermentation products of cellobiose or cellulose degradation were acetic acid, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Expand
Clostridium clariflavum sp. nov. and Clostridium caenicola sp. nov., moderately thermophilic, cellulose-/cellobiose-digesting bacteria isolated from methanogenic sludge.
Based on the phenotypic and phylogenetic data and genomic distinctiveness, strains EBR45(T) and EBR596(T), isolated from anaerobic sludge of a cellulose-degrading methanogenic bioreactor, represent two novel species, for which the names Clostridium clariflavum sp. Expand
Clostridium aldrichii sp. nov., a cellulolytic mesophile inhabiting a wood-fermenting anaerobic digester.
An an aerobic, mesophilic, spore-forming, cellulolytic bacterium was repeatedly isolated from a wood-fermenting anaerobic digester and the type strain is P-1, which is proposed as Clostridium aldrichii sp. Expand

Unraveling the pectinolytic function of Bacteroides xylanisolvens using a RNA-seq approach and mutagenesis
This study shows the existence of six PULs devoted to pectin degradation by B. xylanisolvens, one of them being particularly important in this function, hence, this species deploys a very complex enzymatic machinery that probably reflects the structural complexity of pECTin. Expand
Fermentation of mucins and plant polysaccharides by anaerobic bacteria from the human colon
Porcine gastric mucin, which was fermented by some strains of Ruminococcus torques and Bifidobacterium bifidum, was the only mucin utilized by any of the strains tested. Expand
